The Stevens emphasis on solving business problems through technology attracted Kanika, who now leads a loss optimization team at American Express.
Few managers combine business acumen with the technical expertise to guide their organization into a digital era, where value is created through artificial intelligence, deep learning and predictive analytics.
The Business Intelligence & Analytics master's program provides a blend of analytical and professional skills to help you become a manager who challenges assumptions and uses data to make evidence-based decisions. At Stevens, you'll master new tools that will help you refine products, services and strategies while setting the pace for your company in markets undergoing constant, technology-driven change.
“Companies are looking for people who can use analytics to interpret the data, but they also need business acumen — and in this program, they get both.”
The curriculum covers the concepts at the forefront of the data revolution — machine learning, language processing, web mining, optimization and risk analytics. Classes explore key business concepts while going beyond basics in R, SAS, Hadoop, Python and Sparc. The program culminates in a capstone experience in which you'll work on a project, using real data, under the guidance of an industry mentor.
